On the sixth day of the festival, we had a chance to meet Martin Chilton, journalist and Culture Editor for The Telegraph website. Martin has been hugely involved with the festival, chairing events with the Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman and several others. We had a lovely chat and asked him a few questions, and he seemed really relaxed. We even ended up talking about football!
